Jacob from Versailles, Oh@Matt - If you look at the lyrics one verse says: "We were told just to sit tight,'Cause somebody will soon arrive. Help is on the way. But it never came!" Basically, 'Help is on the Way' is a reference to what the victims of Katrina were repeatedly told. Unfortunately, the response was sorely lacking. Rise Against is very big on activism and cover many racial/social/political issues. I urge you to watch the music video for this song. It will be pretty easy to understand the meanings after viewing. I really like that the band itself did not appear in the video, it was an incredibly moving and well filmed piece.
Matt from Yarrawonga, AustraliaI listen to the song but i wanna know Why is the song called Help is on the way and why does Tim Mcllrath sing the song
